Introducing Rescue Assist, a safety advancement that lets you scan a QR code in a Mercedes-Benz vehicle to instantly access important structural information like the location of batteries, airbags and more.It can be a dangerous situation when, at the scene of an accident, first responders don’t have a vehicle’s structural information readily available. With Rescue Assist, that’s no longer an issue. They can scan a QR code in a Mercedes-Benz vehicle to quickly see where batteries, airbags and other structural elements are located to safely perform the rescue.
Here’s what you need to know:
- A smartphone or tablet with internet connection and a built-in camera function is required to access a vehicle’s schematic.
- Every model has its own QR code installed in two locations: one on the inside of the fuel door and the other on the driver’s side door post (B-pillar).
- As of November 1, 2013, QR codes are installed in all Mercedes-Benz vehicles during production.
- Mercedes-Benz vehicles model years 1990 and newer can be retrofitted with the QR codes at any local dealership.
With Rescue Assist, the QR code decal will be placed in two areas on the vehicle. When you scan the QR code, within seconds, a webpage will open to a structural view of the vehicle. Rescue Assist is both free and easy to use.
